Tireless Garden Workers...Whether We Like It or Not!

Squirrels are an inevitable presence in most gardens, and they can be destructive: feasting at birdfeeders, burying nuts in lawn and garden, chewing wood, and even (when very hungry) eating plants. Make peace with them and protect your garden by using "squirrel proof" birdfeeders whenever possible. And if you feel that squirrels need treats too, consider providing a special feeding station for them, well apart from your best beds and borders, with their favorite foods: high-protein peanuts and cob corn.
